BETHESDA, Md. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation announced on Monday that it will partner with CVS/pharmacy and Warner Home Video for the second year to raise funds for cystic fibrosis through the sale of classic family movies this holiday season.
From now through Dec. 28, CVS/pharmacy will sell four animated holiday movies from Warner Home Video, including "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "The Year Without a Santa Claus," "Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales" and "The Polar Express." The videos will be sold exclusively at CVS/pharmacy. For every video purchased, CVS/pharmacy and Warner Home Video will donate $5 to benefit the Foundation.
Cystic fibrosis is a fatal genetic disease that causes life-threatening lung infections and premature death. It affects about 70,000 people worldwide. The foundation has fueled dramatic improvements in research and care that have changed the prognosis for people with the disease. Where most children with cystic fibrosis once died before reaching elementary school, now people with the disease live into their 30s and beyond.
